I need help with server, I can connect but freinds can't.

OK, I have a computer at my fathers house that has the server on it. I turn the server on and only I can join it (I am at my mothers house). And my friends cant join and it doesn’t show up on the server list. Here are my forwarded ports:


I already ran a L4d server on it once and played a successful campaign.
Also, in gmod, a random person joined me once but that was it:frown:.
please help.

Are you running srcds or it ingame?
I managed to get srcds to work when i forwarded the ports couldnt start a server ingame though.
Make sure sv_lan is set to 0 as well use the portchecker or what ever its called off portforward.com to see if the ports are really forwarded.
If it dosent work make sure the ip for each port is set to the one that portchecker says in top right corner.
hope it helps

Ok, I checked my ports and all that are neccisary are open and set for the computers ip:


Here is my Server.cfg file. It should be fine.

// Server.cfg Executes on maploads
// For Convars like sv_cheats 1 = on 0 = off
hostport 27015 //Port used for the Server

Hostname "vide0's server" // host name

sv_password "*******" //Server Password

//Voice Chat

//sv_cheats 1
//if you put the slashes infront of something everything to the right of them is not executed

//Make sure the Bans are loaded
exec banned_user.cfg

And I accidentally left the server running and some random guy joined then left shortly after(i am partycat):


Yet my friends can’t:confused:.

Please help me

go here http://www.portforward.com/help/portcheck.htm
follow the thingy and tell me if it says its open or if it isnt open

I did that, all the ports from the screen cap in my last post are open according to the program.

Why rate me dumb, I can run a l4d server perfectly fine but under the same conditions garrysmod won’t.

Also, I can’t RCON the gmod server either.
please help

SO NOW ITS FUNNY TO YOU? Stop Your laughing and help me you wanker.
